Our romantic relationships don't exist in a vacuum – They're just one of many intertwining relationships that make up our social world. We may have social activities, like parties or casual get-togethers, that involve both our romantic partner and our friends. If you think of the main characters in the popular 1990's TV show, Friends, they were always there for each other, including all the ups and downs of each other's romantic relationships.
